ABP Android 1.3 blocks downloads in JW Library App

Post by xanda »

We use the following app: JW Library from Google Play here at: https://goo.gl/w4RlnU

All of the multimedia and book donwloads within the app are blocked by ABP. This happens regardless of whether the 'Aceptable Ads' or the 'Filtering' options are selected. This means we have to change the WiFi configuration every time.

There is no advertising in this app whatsoever so perhaps the download URLs for the content are being blocked by mistake?

Please help. Thanks.

you could try to bypass the proxy for the download server

Thanks for the tip - it makes sense to do this.

How can we determine the correct address/value to supply to this field? Thanks.

you should need to know only the server address

probably you need some network traffic tool

read this http://developer.android.com/tools/debu ... ml#network
"The DDMS tool included in the Android SDK includes a tool for monitoring network traffic."
